• information you provide to us for the purpose of attending meetings and events;
• details of your meetings held with representatives of STS;
• any other information which you may provide to us.

How do we obtain your Personal Data?

• you communicate with us via e-mail or other channels;
• when you or one of your team members signs you up for our Deal Summary, news alerts or other materials;
• when you join us at a workshop or event;
• when you provide it to us, or interact with us directly, for instance engaging with representatives of STS or registering on the private Deal Summary area of our website.
In some cases, your Personal Data has been supplemented by information retrieved from other sources, including searches via publicly available search engines and sector-specific newsletters for the purpose of sharing relevant business information with you.
The STS website does not use cookies for tracking purposes.

How do we use your Personal Data?

We only use your Personal Data in connection with our ordinary professional activities. We use that information for communication purposes, including:

• to manage and administer our relationship with you and to personalise your experience and to allow us to deliver the type of content in which you are most interested;
• to maintain our list of contacts;
• to fulfil our legal, regulatory obligations;
• or any purpose related to the foregoing or for any purpose for which you provided the personal data to STS.

Why do we process your Personal Data and on what legal basis?

As set out above we process your Personal Data for communication purposes. We rely on our legitimate interests in maintaining business relationships and communicating with you as a business contact, about STS transaction activities and events.
